I am delighted to inform you that Vision support now offers Braille training. This new service covers both Cheshire and North Wales. It’s delivered in one-to-one sessions and tailored to your needs.
Anyone can learn Braille and, like anything else, the more you practice, the
better you get. Don’t feel that you might be too old to learn as there’s a wide age range of learners who have found it much easier to learn than they expected.
Braille is a vital tool for anyone who is blind or partially sighted, and has numerous applications such as labeling CD / DVD collections, food items and clothes hangers. Browse the TV listings from the comfort of your arm chair, read magazines or identify medication packages. Request your utility bills and bank statements in Braille, giving you back the independence and satisfaction of managing your household budget / finances. You can subscribe to numerous Braille magazines. You can even choose from a wide range of books etc from RNIB Braille library, which holds thousands of titles. Braille can replace your pen and paper so it’s as versatile as you need it to be.
There are options to assist with spreading the cost of purchasing your Perkins Braille writing machine from RNIB and we are happy to advise if you need us to.
For more information contact Vision Support at any of our offices, listed further on, and subject to availability your Braille training will be arranged for a time that’s convenient for you.
